For many months prior to July, 1922, I was confined to my bed with heart disease and gall bladder trouble, and there seemed to be no response to the efforts made by the doctors to help me. On July 24, 1922, I therefore turned to Christian Science and immediately accepted its teachings as the basis for my future thinking. Through the earnest study of the Bible and the works of Mary Baker Eddy, and the assistance of Christian Science practitioners, I have been making splendid progress.

While in the beginning the diseases seemed very aggressive, the understanding of what Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 453), that "mental chemicalization follows the explanation of Truth, and a higher basis is thus won; but with some individuals the morbid moral or physical symptoms constantly reappear," has given me courage and the ability to hold to the truth of being. By March, 1923, I was healed of the smoking habit and of gambling, which were an obsession with me for thirty years; chronic tonsillitis, colds, and headaches were also healed.

Through an incorrect application of Christian Science a sense of separation occurred between myself and my wife in June, 1923, but by careful examination of my own thought, looking within myself for the trouble, and by refusing to accept material sense testimony as real, this situation was healed in January, 1925. The moral and spiritual uplift is most wonderful, and I rejoice to know a little of this truth.
